“Some sort of student certification” Since we started the SHARE Center, the single biggest request from professors was for some sort of student certification. Considerable interest in having a “stamp of approval” on students graduating from hospitality and tourism schools. At the end of 2011, we met with ICHRIE and AH&LEI (the Educational Institute of the AHLEI) and decided to offer a student certification as a joint effort. The primary contacts are Cynthia Deale (ICHRIE), Chris Jack (AH&LEI), and Steve Hood (STR SHARE Center).
Progress Update A pilot program was launched in the summer of 2012 with 80 professors from 50 universities. Participants were surveyed and improvements were made. There are now 200 universities involved, from the US, Canada, South/Central America, Europe, Asia, and the Mideast/Africa. There are 75 non-US schools. Over 1000 students have received the CHIA certification. Sixteen Train the Trainer sessions have been conducted for 400 professors. Training materials, learning objectives, application exercises, and exam questions were reviewed. The program was fine tuned with feedback from professors.
Certification Basics The official name is “STAR Certification in Hotel Industry Analytics”. The abbreviated name is “CHIA”. The certification is offered jointly by the ICHRIE, AH&LEI, and STR to undergraduate and graduate students. Universities that are interested in offering the certification are required to send at least one professor to a Train the Trainer session. There is no charge for this session to members of the SHARE Center. In the future schools will need to have one professor that has the CHIA certification (successfully passing the exam).
Certification Details The exam cost to the student is $75. Need-based scholarships will be considered. Training is focused on 4 content areas: Hotel Analytical Foundations, Hotel Math Fundamentals, Property Level Benchmarking, and Hotel Industry Performance Reports. Testing is administered by EI. There are 50 multiple choice questions on the exam and the minimum passing score is 70%. Students receive certificates and can use the “CHIA” designation after their name on their business card or resume/CV.
Presentation Options Schools are using a variety of different formats to present the training to their students. Universities have incorporated the certification in Lodging Operations, Revenue Management, and Capstone classes. Some universities are offering the training in a workshop and one offered it as a lab. Some schools are presenting the material in one class. Others are spreading the material out over multiple classes. Some have made it optional and others have made it mandatory. Many schools have offered the certification to their graduate students.
Certification Description This is the leading hotel-related certification for university students graduating from Hospitality and Tourism programs. This recognition provides evidence of a thorough knowledge of the foundational metrics, definitions, formulas, and methodologies that are used by the hotel industry. Recipients have proven that they can “do the math” and interpret the results. They have demonstrated an ability to analyze various types of hotel industry data and to make strategic inferences based upon that analysis. Certification also confirms a comprehensive understanding of benchmarking and performance reports. Designees have a grasp of the current landscape of the hotel industry, including relevant current events. Achieving this distinction announces that you have a place among the best graduates in your profession and opens the doors to future career opportunities.
Upcoming Train the Trainer Sessions Additional “Train the Trainer” sessions are scheduled around the world: –April in Beijing, Shanghai, and Tianjin –May in Hong Kong, hosted by HK Poly –May at AsiaPacCHRIE in Kuala Lampur, hosted by Taylors –July at ICHRIE in San Diego –October at EuroCHRIE in Dubai, hosted by Emirates Academy More sessions are being planned (Singapore, London, Eastern Europe, Africa, South America, India). Online TTT sessions are also available.
Academic Certification – Industry Response The industry quickly became aware of the academic version of the CHIA Certification. One major hotel company recently asked a hospitality and tourism department head for her list of CHIA-certified students for two RM trainee positions and hired two. We’ve received many testimonials from graduates who felt the CHIA was instrumental in them obtaining their new job. We’ve also heard great feedback from graduates where they were able to demonstrate their analytics knowledge to their new employers.
Launch of the Industry Version The launch of the industry version of the CHIA was just announced at the New York Hotel Show in November The industry version is being jointly offered by AHLEI and STR. Pilot CHIA training sessions have been conducted for many of the major hotel companies. Sessions have included general managers, revenue managers, corporate staff, and training staff. More sessions are scheduled. Nearly 100 industry professionals have already received their certification. The cost of the industry certification will be $300 ($250 for AH&LA members). It will count towards continuing education requirements. There is no “length of service” requirement.
Future Possibilities Advanced or focused versions of the CHIA certification are being considered in specific areas: –Revenue Management –Tourism –Finance and Accounting –Real Estate –Technology –Social, Local, Mobile –Sales and Marketing –Lodging Operations
Certification Content The certification relates to four core training areas: 1.Hotel Industry Analytical Foundations 2.Hotel Math Fundamentals, the metrics used by the Hotel Industry 3.Property Level Benchmarking (STAR Reports) 4.Hotel Industry Performance Reports (Trends, Pipeline, P&L and Destination Reports)
Sample Learning Objectives Hotel Math Fundamentals, metrics used by the hotel industry –Define various performance metrics used by the hotel industry –Calculate various performance metrics based upon raw data –Demonstrate an ability to calculate data for multiple time periods –Explain differences in performance metrics between monthly and daily data –Demonstrate an ability to calculate competitive set metrics, including index numbers, based upon raw data –Define ranking and explain the method for calculating –Explain comp set sufficiency and participation issues and their relationship upon metrics
Sample Learning Objectives - continued Property Level Benchmarking with the STAR Reports –Identify the various segments that a subject hotel is compared to on a STAR Report –Identify the various time periods that are measured on both Monthly and Weekly STAR reports –Identify the metrics displayed on the pages of a Weekly and Monthly STAR Report –Explain the significance of the Response page –Explain the value of the Weekday/Weekend and Day of Week metrics –Describe the STAR Report pages that display Group/Transient –Explain why monthly data on the Monthly STAR Report may differ from daily data on the Weekly STAR Report
